[July 22, 2019]   Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital will host a Safe Sitter training day from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 10th. The training will be open to all youth in the grade levels sixth through eighth. The event is free to attend but pre-registration is required. Seating is limited so interested persons are encouraged to register soon.

The day will include a wide range of training to prepare students to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

The Instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR.

The lessons offered will fall under four categories:

Safety Skills

Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.

First Aid and Rescue Skills

Learning skills such as choking rescue and CPR is often students’ favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.

Child Care Skills

Students learn tips to manage behavior that will help them stay in control of themselves and the children in their care. Students also learn the ages and stages of child development, as well as practice diapering.

Life and Business Skills

The ability to screen jobs, discuss fees, and greet employers will set students up for success now and in the future. Students practice these skills through various role plays.

The training day will take place in the Steinfort conference rooms and students should bring a sack lunch for the noontime break.

Pre-Registration is required by August 1, 2019. To register call 217-605-5700 Register early as space is limited.
